I have.........
Musafolia canna aka banana canna. Only have about a dozen or so of these to trade. They grew to about 7' last year in partial shade, and should grow larger in full sun. They multiply quicker than most canna. They make small dark purple flowers that attract hummingbirds.

Yellow King Humbert canna. Also about a dozen of these available. Makes an orange and yellow flower, and grows up to 4 or 5' tall.

Unknown species of banana tree. The older plants grew to about 14' tall last year. One of them bloomed a large purple flower about 12" or 14" long. They are not solid green. They have some purple tint in the stalks. I have about a dozen of these also.

I am looking for..............

Pretoria canna aka Bengal Tiger canna
Tropicanna canna
Any other species of canna that has variegated foliage, or foliage of any color but solid green.
Red banana trees
Giant elephant ear, such as.....Giant Taro, Alocasia Odora, and Borneo Giant
